Bonne Nuit Jersey

Hi, Is it possible to moor up against the pier wall at Bonn Nuit in
Maybe rafting 6 or 7 boats?

Thanks

There isn't normally much space. You can probably get one or two boats alongside, but the moored boats on the sand adjacent would limit rafting up. It dries out too, so you would have to pick your time carefully. Bouley bay is a better option possibly.

A bit more room there. At Bonne Nuit assuming it's a short stay you would need to anchor outside the harbour and use one boat for ferrying.

As the other two have said - space is tight. There is also a sign suggesting that boats not be tied to the wall.

I have left a boat on the wall at Bouley for a few hours, though the outboard took a couple of hits from all the coming and going.

uum ok thanks
The Guernsey Powerboat Association are planning a Poker run including a night in Jersey. They wanted to include a short stop somewhere for a drink before heading to St.Helier for the night.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks

Gorey or St. Aubin would be my alternatives but both tide dependant.

Bouley bay might be the best bet, great food at the Black Dog, right at the base of the pier

I've had a few run-ins with the mooring nazis at Bonne Nuit over the years. All the north coast harbours are a bit strange. I'd give them a miss to be honest; there's not much going on in any of them.

Bouley Bay / Black Dog

As above do Bouley Bay, don't tie under the crane at the steps. Raft the boats at anchor / to vacant mooring and ferry ashore and tie up at the red ladder, there is a rung missing fairly low down

Let me know the date / time and I can probably pop down to advise on a mooring to use. Black dog is lovely til about 7 ish when the sun disappears

I am happy for you to raft 2 or 3 each side of my boat on its mooring or use it if i am not there subject reasonable weather.

If anyone says you can't leave boat by the ladder tell them I say you can I am on the committee at Bouley Bay. Probably only advisable to leave 1/2 boats alongside (rafted). Water at steps most of tide except about 1 hour either side of low on anything bigger than 32ft at St Helier.
